Correct. James was also involved on Spinning On An Axis, track 9.

Sorry--Hiney, but I know what tracks James is on and my opinion hasn't changed. Perhaps he is "great", but to compare his playing to Eddie Van Halen in style or anything else is..well..just daft. And young James hasn't shown this greatness on record yet--maybe he is and maybe he will one day.

I've certainly not heard anything suggesting brilliance, but then again, we've not heard much from him as yet full stop. So we can't make too much of a judgement really . . .

You can only judge by what's been heard. Period. And I just dont see EVH. Someone needs a Q-Tip!

Well, I am not at all familiar with Van Halen, so I can't say anything on the subject. But I do agree with your comment that there is no evidence of greatness in Mac Jr. He may have some talent, he may not. We'll have to wait and see.

Agreed on that, too - but the less there is that we've heard, the less conclusive our judgement can be.

Liam-he's on 2 or 3 tracks-it's out there to hear. True--that's not alot of sampling, but it's enough to know he's no Eddie Van Halen, or Paul McCartney, for that matter, on the guitar.

I suppose so. Which 3 is it again - Heaven On A Sunday, Spinning On An Axis and Back In The Sunshine Again, isn't it?

Yep--I think that's it. Unless someone else has some secret tracks that only they know about. Perhaps they fell from the sky--LOL
